  • A really fun museum to walk through, with plenty of different styles of art to look at. You'll need to check your backpacks, but it's free and easy to do so. The gift shop is expansive and definitely worth looking through - some of the stuff in there is as artful as the items on display. I think this museum could even hold the attention of children if you moved quickly enough.
  • Interesting museum. They have 4 floors of exhibitions that are available. Definitely worth checking out.
